Bagger project (still needs bags )


Roadster project (needs mufflers)


Chopper project (needs rear lighting)

"Ride Safe, Chop Safer" Motorcycles are not unsafe. However; they are extremely unforgiving of inattention, incompetence, ignorance, and stupidity.
Dismantling, sawzalling, and rattle canning does not make a bobber.
Those are STEPS toward customizing, not customizing unto itself.

Those are awesome! I like the chopper a ton. How did you manage to add more rake to it?

Thanks, I had Ken at Jack's Salvage cut/reshape/weld the frame to my specs. 7" over forks from Forking by Frank rounded off the other end of that.

Here's my bobber project. BCB fender, ebay plate bracket/taillight, seat, springs, grips. Plate under seat is custom carbon fiber. Just cleaned the carb last night, now I don't have to drive around 1/3 at choke.

I inherited the bike from my late father-in-law. He was about 5'5" and I'm 6' I did the bobber thing so I could move the seat back and down for a bit more leg room. It's still tight. Just brought home that Bimmer (background, second pic) Saturday so once that's done this might go. Or I'll just keep it for short trips. I do like a light bike, and the K100 is NOT.

Here's a couple former projects --- well, actually it's the same project just different rear fender experiments. I never did finish the bike as I ended up giving it to a good friend in dire need.

Fender #1 - bobbed the forward/under-seat portion and rotated it:



Fender #2 - 750 Aero front fender with radiator-side bobbed and reversed for use as a rear fender:

Okay, any reason why images hosted at the same site as my initial post aren't showing up in the new post?
